About Photoflex

The unique shape of the OctoDome produces a beautiful "wraparound" style of lighting perfect for fashion photography and portraiture.

OctoDome has a unique eight-sided shape and a narrow profIle that allows you to achieve brilliant, "wraparound" lighting without compromising studio space.

By using a rear-mounted light setup, the OctoDome gives you significantly more light output than a standard reflective umbrella used with diffusion.

The graduated baffle maintains an even light spread and eliminates the hot spot to provide a beautiful, diffused light.

You Can Feel The Glow

This is my go-to for beauty and incredible, soft headshots. The light wraps around my subjects like heaven so soft, you can feel the light in the images resulting. Once you develop a technique with your foot to spin the unit, assembly is easy. Front-end velcro straps make this the most flexible unit for moving from inside to outdoors. Magic!

Gorgeous catchlights

By

from Niles, MI  -  Pro Photographer

Amazing soft light producing beautiful catchlights. Fast setup- unvelcro the corners, then put the rods through the softbox into your speed ring, then close one by one. You won't damage the rods that way. Excellent for individuals and groups, however you will have to move it away from the group in order to not have it sneak into the side of your picture!

Great product

By

from Pittsburgh, PA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I got this size (5 foot) after using the 3 foot version for head shots. It's a very well made unit that is relatively easy to set up. I love the even, wrap around lighting it produces. My personal taste is for circular or octagonal catch lights in the eyes instead of square or rectangular ones and this unit does this nicely.

Best light diffuser

By

from Green Bay  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This diffuser makes you a better portrait photographer, it just does. Eye reflections, lighting of lips are shockingly better than rectangular boxes. I do 6 to 10 model shoots a month, paid shoots to me, and I don't think I'd get the model's love and attention without this wonderful product.

Photoflex flexes its power

By

from Central Coast, CA  -  Professional

This lightbox is wonderful and creates nice, soft lighting. It is a little difficult to push the poles into place though and takes some muscle but should be easier with use.

I love it, great softbox!

By

from Paragould, AR.  -  Professional

Great color, well made, looks like it's going to last a long time. One suggestion though....once you get it together leave it up for a month or so to relax them poles a bit, It's a major pain to put together until it gets broken in a bit.

Get experience with lighting!

from Wichita, KS

This is a great softbox! The octogon shape really helps spreading the light evenly! The only thing I do not like was finding an adapter for this was incredibly hard, but overall a great product!

Questions about this item:

doug s  will a sb 700 have enough power? or do i need a strobe?
C EDWARD B  Ive used my 580EXIII with it and have enjoyed good results. Depending on your distance your issue will more likely be recycle time. Generally if you have your small flash connected to a external battery pack your recycle times wont be too bad.
Shopper  I own AlienBees light unit now. and would like to purchase this Octodome...Will this fit on AB? Is this product complete?
DONNELL B  No, the connector ring is not compatible, you will have to purchase the Photoflex adapter ring for Alien bees. (SC-B9005PBR), then you will be able to connect the Photoflex OctoDome 3 Medium Softbox to the Alien Bees with no problem. Good Luck and happy shooting.

Using Bank Lights

First off, some bank light basics: Unlike umbrellas, bank lights are bulky (even when collapsed!), a pain to set-up, and equally frustrating to break down! Bank lights come in a huge variety of sizes to create beautiful, soft, directional light suitable for a huge variety of subjects.
